What is “Summer in JAPAN”?
Since 2013, non-profit educational organization Summer in JAPAN (SIJ) has been producing an English summer camp for youth “Summer in JAPAN” in order to foster a spirit of mutual understanding in the global era. SIJ’s key philosophies are Innovative English Education, Eventful International Exchange, and Educational Platforms in Every Single Neighborhood.
Selected students from Harvard University, from Japan, and from other parts of the world team up to teach visualization and increased self-expression skills in intensive writing classes. The program also includes a variety of workshops as well as a concert organized and performed by Harvard students. The aim of the seminar is to benefit both the college student instructors who enhance their skills and expertise by acting as leaders in managing all aspects of their classes, and the young participants who not only broaden their horizons, but acquire global perspectives. SIJ is a prize winner of the 5th Career Education Award from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
